Popsicle Cards

Although today is a bit cool and wet here in central Ontario, we've had a few very hot and humid days - and are in for some more.  My youngest has been asking for some frozen treats to help cool down and, as this week's challenge at My Craft Spot is all about Cool Treats, I couldn't help but use popsicles as my inspiration.


I created these 3x3 cards using some fun, bright cardstock.  The popsicles were cut with Just Because Cards and stamped with little faces from Peachy Keen.  I then coated them with Glossy Accents.  The side border of the card base was punched with a Stampin' Up border punch and I used the same punch for the bright borders across the cards.  The top mat was run through my Cuttlebug using the Tiny Hearts folder.  


For each card, I stamped a sweet little sentiment from My Craft Spot's Inside & Out - Set#2, using punches from Marvy (for the white circle) and EK Success (for the coloured scalloped circles).  I finished things off with some cheery baker's twine from My Craft Spot, attaching little bows to the base of each popsicle.


Please head over to My Craft Spot to check out the rest of the Cool Treats created by the talented design team.  Then take a break from the heat to create your own project to link up for this week's challenge.  Stay cool!!

Kate, these are precious! The super bright colors are perfect for summer and I just love the sweet PK faces you gave the popsicles. :o) The Glossy Accents and twine are such lovely accents. Of course I adore the heart embossing and border trim... you packed so many adorable tidbits into these mini cards! Lovely work, my friend!

Hugs and blessings!

These are just awesome! Your colors remind me of melons and lemons and limes, great tropical fruit colors for summer. Cute, cute, cute. I saw on the weather channel that the humidity is going to make it feel like it's in the 40's for the next 2 days in Ontario. You're going to need those cold treats! Stay cool,
{Hugs} Barb

The combination of the glossy accents (one of my personal faves)--the uber cute twine, fun sentiments, PK faces, and the adorable border punches makes for such an awesome treat for the eyes AND heart!!! Thank you so very much for sharing and for your tender sweet love- friend:) be blessed
